Easy as 1,2,3

I was passing through a gift shop yesterday, and saw a packet of cleverly wrapped bath salts. I got home and adapted the idea for a here to get a pattern.

It's perfect for a "flat" favor (like the Ghirardelli chocolate I used below, or maybe some tea bags)...or a small gift. Cut out the pattern and fold along the dotted lines. Place your item into the cut-out piece, as shown below:

Then with just a few folds...One:



Flip over, fold and tuck flap into slot:

I cut out contrasting papers to fit the different flaps, and glued them on to decorate (I used a Martha Stewart border punch that I got from J's adds just the right touch!!):

Here's an idea for graduation:

Before I go, here's an adorable Mother's Day card I received from Diane:

It's a four panel, pocketed card with a different tag in each pocket!!! Those of you who make cards know how much work and care went into making this!!! Thanks, Diane!!!!

Hope you all have a great evening!!!
